Happy Hanukkah

Hmm, what to feature? After a bit all of the LEGO menorahs and dreidels look alike to me, so let's take another look at Tbone_tbl's version of Solomon's Temple, as described in further detail on his blog. Okay, this isn't the actual structure that was rededicated on the first Hanukkah. Solomon's Temple was destroyed in 586 BCE. The returning Jewish exiles built another on its spot between 537 and 516 BCE. That second temple is the one celebrated on Hanukkah, but this is a great model well worth a second look.

I hope all my readers who celebrate it had a wonderful Hanukkah.
